I also have to mention the food, we were completely surprised to find such a vast array of food and every meal time. Remember _everything_ has to get to the lodge by canoe, and the food was just awesome, there was something for everyone. And always delicious, you work up an apetite going on hikes in the early morning and late until the night---when most animals are the most active. And don't even get me started on the delicate desserts....we love food, and we thought we might have "rough it" a little in the jungle, but the Sacha Lodge always provided a tastey menu. Oh, and I think it's every Wednesday where they have a barbeque down by the pier, and it's sooooo goood. Like I said you work up an apetite.
